HOLIDAY SHOPPERS HELP UNDERPRIVILEGED KIDS
WHILE SAVING MONEY, HAVING FUN & BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS
Gift Givers Make Meaningful Moments with the “Gamification of Conversation”
While Empowering At-Risk Kids and Families to Play Together & Live Healthy Lives
HOLLAND, Mich., December 1, 2020 – With citizens stuck inside for most of 2020, people are eager to be together this holiday season, even if they have to connect via Zoom or FaceTime. Everyone’s suffering "cabin fever" and many need help figuring out what to do since most entertainment and dining is shut down.
Beginning today, Giving Tuesday, Storyastic offers The Rank Game main game and any expansion pack FREE, with the purchase of the main game and any expansion pack. This gives all consumers immediate access to wholesale pricing for the game named “Favorite Pick” by the American Specialty Toy Retailers Association at Toy Fair NY, the largest toy and game convention in the Western Hemisphere.
This affords consumers with the ability to “buy one get one free” so they can gift the game to other important people in their lives, with the game that’s bringing people together across America, after THE RANK GAME was fully-funded on Kickstarter in less than 48 hours and has gone on to sell into retailers and living rooms in 47 U.S. states as people discovered “the gamification of conversation” through THE RANK GAME during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To multiply the positive impact THE RANK GAME has on relationships, Storyastic is also donating 10% of all proceeds from the BOGO promotion to benefit children and families in need across the U.S. and around the world. This occurs not just on Giving Tuesday, but throughout the entire month of December. The following philanthropic organizations are the beneficiaries:
• Boys & Girls Club of America Give Kids the World • Playworks Michigan
• Child’s Play Charity Kids Around the World • Wait No More - Focus on the Family
• Family Life Communications Kids Play International • Young Life
THE RANK GAME is a new all-together party game created to help friends and families “tech less and talk more” as they have belly-laugh fun while strengthening their relationships. Designed by “Disney couple” Dana and Chip Brown, a Walt Disney Imagineer and a Disney Studios Producer, and parents of three, THE RANK GAME gives families and friends a simple and interactive way to combat cabin fever and engage in positive, fun conversation.
THE RANK GAME is an ‘all-together’ game because it brings people from all backgrounds together, and also, everyone is playing the game all together at once, so nobody has to wait for someone else to take their turn. The rules are easy, pick a card and start ranking. Whichever Guesser comes closest to the Ranker’s choices, wins! It couldn’t be simpler. This promotes fun competition, because players only win when they look at the topics from other peoples’ perspectives. This basic element defines the community-building power of THE RANK GAME.
“The Rank Game was created to empower friends and families to have intentional, real-world experiences together. It's gratifying to see so many people so positively impacted by a game that gets all of us back to basics," said Dana. “We are completely humbled by how well The Rank Game has done in everyday people’s lives and especially all the positive impact it’s having on campuses, in hospitals, in corporate environments and family-oriented philanthropic organizations.”
“With so many people telling us how they enjoy playing the game often, and coming back to buy more copies to give others, we wanted to put together a program that makes it easy and affordable for them to gift The Rank Game,” added Chip. “We also wanted to leverage everyone’s interest and enthusiasm in The Rank Game to help those less fortunate, especially with all the families negatively impacted by the pandemic.”
